Order & Chaos
The old stone buildings, rusty metal, intricate detail and abandoned uninhabitable buildings of Portland, Oregon really peak my curiosity. The juxtaposition of order and chaos, both intentional and unintentional, are what make life interesting. What was once meticulously designed to look its best and formed by human hands is later subject to entropy and natural chaos. In some cases chaos is created by the designer, others not. The natural organic forms of rust and decay have a beauty of their own. My favorite past-time is walking the streets of Portland and capturing the unnoticed details of the city. The fine stone-crafting of the cathedrals, the expansive bridges, and other structures give me endless camera fodder in this old town.
